Amber teething necklace safety tips
1. Always make sure that your baby does not chew on the amber teething necklace.
2. Young babies should always be supervised when wearing an amber teething necklace.
3. Remove the amber teething necklace at nap times, bedtime and anytime the child is unsupervised
4. Know your amber necklace. Real amber warms on the skin when worn. A good quality amber teething necklace for children is strung and individually knotted between all the amber nuggets and has a safety twist clasp. (as in JeleBebe Baltic Amber Teething Necklace picture) The twist clasp ensures that should too much strain be placed on the necklace it easily breaks to relieve the pressure, hence NOT choking your child. The individual knotting is perfect for when the necklace is broken that amber nuggets are not loosened everywhere for your child to pick up and choke on either.
